I often meet diabetics years into their disease process who are yet to answer simple questions like:
WHAT is diabetes? and WHY they are consuming the drugs that they are taking?
Most diabetics have to take several drugs per day in order to optimize heart, nerves, blood pressure, cholesterol and kidney protection, which the patient fails to understand either from lack of knowledge or the patient may be just too embarrassed to ask the doctor questions feeling that it may be silly or the doctor may not have sufficient time to answer them. What ever the reason it comes down to the patient feeling that they don’t need the drugs and more than 50% either never start the drug or stop it after the blood tests normalize feeling that they are CURED!!!!
At ADVANTAGE you will experience state of the art digital patient education in a quiet personal room where all your questions however silly or embarrassed you may feel will be automatically answered via detailed info-graphics. Although primarily in English we have subtitled them in local languages in order to improve understanding and compliance.
